North Mississippi - Batesville, MS - 1st Annual Black Jack Hang - November 11th-13th



1st Annual Black Jack Hang November 11th-13th

This is the official planning thread for the 1st Annual Black Jack Hang - 2016

This hang will take place on 300 acres of private land. It is car camping/primitive with no bathrooms or running water. There is a running spring that will provide plenty of water if you desire. We have plenty of hang spots in which all will be within walking distance of your car. I will have a travel trailer setup for emergencies if one should arise. The property sits in a country setting with mature hardwoods and pines with trails throughout. The trails are maintained annually and would allow for both walking/biking. A fellow hanger and member here has offered his barn for the Saturday night gathering if the group wants to do that. It is only about a mile down the road. This would be our large group gathering as to allow for you guys to explore the area on Saturday if you like. I will attach a few links of things to do in the area. There is a grocery store and Wally World approximately 15 minutes away in Batesville or in Oxford if you would like to grab your grub once you get here. So come one come all - I am looking forward to seeing a few old friends and meeting new ones. If you have any questions or would like to contact me personally, please email at csmith@itstimetoinsure.com

Sounds like a great place and all the makings for a great time!

If that weren't the same time as our annual Texas hang, I'd do all I could to get there.

I'm looking forward to pictures and a trip report! All the best to y'all!

Looks like I will be making this hang. The Sipsey hang is conflicting with a previous engagement, so I'm going to make this one instead. I can't add my name to the list on my phone, so I will have to do it tomorrow from the house. Looking forward to it!!

I will have a WBRR and a WBBB XLC with me.

Ok fellow hangers, the hang is finally about to be here. The weather is looking like low 40's (maybe upper 30's) and low to mid 60's for the weekend. No chance of rain. So break out those fair weather tarps or just go topless if you like!! There is no limit to the amount of people we can accommodate so don't worry about a last minute drop in. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

I'm coming, this is Austin Cain. I tend to depend solely on myself for food but i may have an extra pack of peanut noodles. They are light weight, and fairly easy to cook. They also make Ramen taste like kibble. Not everyone likes them though. I cook on a small alcohol stove and normally only build a fire for socializing. My buddy Dustin might come with me. I'll try the spreadsheet later but if anyone has any questions I'll be glad to answer them. I've been using hammocks for about 5 years. I struggle a bit with underquilts but I've got something I've been experimenting with. If ya'll want to check out my setup it's cool with me. I know not everyone has been in the woods their whole life.
